Weaving enterprise and economic development into the Web

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee organized an internet-based hypermedia initiative as a ubiquitous information sharing network. In other words, he invented the World Wide Web (source of quote). Then came the advent of the Internet, the network of networks and enterprise and economic development game changer going into the 21st century.

The share network you are using was introduced online in 1997. At that time there were many questions about online technology. We (who we are) turned to the glossary for Berners-Lee's book Weaving the Web for answers. Doing so, we created this addendum to the networks online Enterprise & Economic Development Glossary.

Weaving the Web also guided the establish of our basic policy for interfacing with core network users as well as providing resources for enterprise development, economic development, and business solutions. Referring to the definition of open source in Berners-Lee's book glossary we committed to operating open access on the Web.
